We found this jewel on the web and couldn't have been happier when we arrived. Reinhold was the perfect host willing to please our every need. Our room was cozy as well as charming. Up one flight of stairs we found our Leonard Bernstein room with modern furnishings. The comfy bed was just what we needed at the end of...

After spending a lot of time looking into Boston hotels that all seemed very expensive for not very much, we consulted with the Trip Advisor and checked out a few more of the independent places. We found Encore listed and checked out it's website, it looked great, so we decided to give it a go - and we are so...

I have heard so many good things about Encore, and I have to say right off the bat: it does not disappoint. From the moment I climbed the stairs of the lovely South End brownstone I knew I was in for a unique stay. The proprietor Reinhold met me with a warm welcome, showing me to the Bernstein room. It...

My husband and I stayed at Encore for 2 nights at the start of April and we had a very relaxing stay. The BnB is very modern and in very good condition. The rooms are a good size and Reinhold (the owner) was very sweet. The BnB is located in a quiet area and is within walking distance from Boston...

I learnt about Encore B&B through a friend who saw it on Tripadvisor. It is located in the Southend, near Back Bay Station and is within walking distance to Fairmont Copley Plaza Hotel which was where I had my conference. The Albee room which I stayed is a cozy and elegantly-decorated room. It is equipped with a flat-screen TV, a...

We were treated like guests in a home, but were also afforded our privacy. Our room was clean and modern with the latest in amenities. The location was very central and quintessential Boston. It is only a quick walk to the Prudential City and the bars/restaurants of Back Bay. The owners of the bed & breakfast were very knowledgeable about...

We had lovely chats with Encore's proprietor Reinhold, but also with fellow guests over the breakfast table. Both Encore itself and its proprietor create a warm and comfortable and lovely atmosphere that put us and our fellow traveling strangers at ease. The light and spacious rooms are tastefully done and very comfortable, and the beautiful and quiet street of rowhouses...

Staying in South End

Neighbourhood Profile
South End
Stroll down the beautiful brownstone lined streets while capturing views of Boston’s tallest buildings from a distance. Some of Boston’s best restaurants are scattered around this neighborhood. There are many gems to be found, from jazz clubs to classy bars and restaurants. It is also home to art galleries, interesting boutiques, artsy stores and SOWA open market during the summer months. The South End is a true find in the city, with a more residential feeling than Back Bay.
